Family Escapes Chula Vista House Fire

The fire, which gutted the back of a home in the 700 block of 2nd Avenue, has left a family of eight without a place to live.

Fire investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.

Fire damaged the back of the home, where all the family’s Christmas gifts were kept. Still the homeowners are staying upbeat.

That firefighter was evaluated on scene and did not have to be transported to the hospital because the injury sustained was reported as minor.

"Black smoke almost like a full on chimney,” said Enrique Patlan a neighbor. “That whole back end of the house is gone."
